In an amazing moment on Monday shared on social media by The Young and the Restless star Greg Rikaart (Kevin), the actor revealed he has become a father!

Rikaart took to his Instagram with a photo of himself alongside his husband, TV writer Robert Sudduth, and the new addition to their family, Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth.

Greg shared his joy with the world with his post:  “We fight hate, fear, bigotry, homophobia and injustice in the world with love, intellect and enlightenment. In the truest and most pure definitions of the latter words, it is with full hearts that Rob and I take great pride in introducing our son, Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth.   He was born in Roseville, CA at 5:01pm on 6/12/16. He is light and love and magic. Monte, Rob, myself and Marcela, our trooper of a surrogate, are all doing fantastic.”

Send your congratulations and well-wishes to Greg and Robert in the comment section below!

Wow, wonderful news Greg. I hope you and Robert enjoy your bundle of joy. Congrats and God bless. I am getting married, to my boyfriend in 2 weeks. I am nervous, we have had our ups and downs. I came out of the closet 2 years ago, I am comfortable with myself and love my soon to be husband very much. I am 30 years old, and soon to be husband is 32 years old. To the tragedy in Orlando Florida, let’s pray for the family of the victims. We are all devasted in what happened on Sunday. Amen. I live in Vancouver BC Canada. We have friends all over the united States. This tragedy has hit all of us. We are all praying and thinking of the familys. Amen.

Celia, you and so many here have been so gracious — it is so refreshing. And, as you mentioned elsewhere in reply to me, I don’t have any patience for Dark Ages-thinking or intolerance. Take care, Friend!

More and more, I get TOTALLY ANGRY whenever I read articles about or see news reports on TV about certain countries condemning gay people!!!!! Beyond sad.

Later, my friend.

I am truly shocked to know this actor Greg Rikaart is actually gay…. He’s a man that any woman would desire to have as an husband, but hearing of him being gay it’s a shock to me. My country Jamaica doesn’t support gays at all.

Mo

Well, no, I wouldn’t want to have him as a husband as he doesn’t ‘like’ women. 😉 Anyway, that’s why it’s called acting! 🙂

Casey, I wish you’d clarify your remarks — for your own sake. I can’t tell whether you agree or disagree with your “country Jamaica.” Thanks.

I don’t know what’s worse, James….living in the Dark Ages or intolerance….or do they cancel each other out?????
I wish I understood Casey’s point?
WOW!! Later, my friend.

For years I’ve thought of Greg Rikaart as the ideal man: talented, funny, clearly compassionate and with a strong social conscience. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s one of the few actors who know how to wear clothes or that he has a killer smile and gorgeous hair. I’m glad he’s happy and has someone who appreciates him and they can share their love with a very blessed child. At least something good happened this week!

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

AW and Y&R Alum Alicia Coppola To Recur On ‘Empire’

More exciting roles coming the way of Alicia Coppola! Casting news out today has that the former soap alum of both Another World (Ex-Lorna) and more recently, The Young and the Restless (Ex-Meredith) has landed a recurring role on Empire.

According to Deadline: “Coppola will play a smart, flamboyant attorney investigating Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) and international money launderer Damon Cross (Wood Harris).  She’ll do almost anything for big target convictions because she believes they’ll take her to the Governor’s mansion and then the White House.”

In an Instagram post on Friday, Alicia posted: “What a way to start the Holidays, end 2018 and begin a wonderful 2019! Thank you is all I can say. To say I am Grateful is an understatement. @empirefox here I come!” Recently, Coppola also recurred on NCIS: Los Angeles.

On Thursday night’s Soap Nation Live radio broadcast, Linda Dano, who played Alicia’s on-screen mother on Another World, Felicia Gallant, had complimented Alicia during her guest segment, and she still keeps in touch with her.  You can listen to that here.

So, will you be checking out Alicia on Fox’s Empire?  Let us know via the comment section below.
